Fibaro FGK-10x ZW5 Parameter #52 Not Working ?


Recommended Posts

According to the FGK-10x ZW5 Operating Manual :

Please login or register to see this code.


Reading that, I assumed that even with a 100% stable temperature, a temperature report would be sent to the Hub every xxx seconds, as specified into this parameter.

I set xxx to 14400 seconds = 4 hours, but the Events List shows that I can wait for as long as 6 hours and more before getting such a Multi Level Sensor Report.

And this is not the case of some of the reports being accidentally lost, because I have observed multiple instances of this problem.


So my question is : do I read incorrectly what Parameter 52 means ? Or does it not work ?? Has anybody observed it actually working ???

  • Well, after further experiment, it looks like Parameter #52 does work… kind of.

    You do get periodic Temperature Reports with constant temperature, but the value of Parameter #52 needs to be tweaked, because the supposed "seconds" value is widely off target : from my own experiments, on my own FGK-101 ZW5, the ratio effective/programmed is : x1.92.

    So to get a 4h periodic Temperature Report with constant temperature, I had to program Parameter #52 to 7510 instead of the theoretical 14400 seconds.

    With that tweaked value, I do get a 4h periodic report !.


    I would be interested to know if somebody else gets the same ratio, or if it is specific to my own (buggy ?) FGK-101...
